TELEHOUSE ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH PACKETFABRIC OFFERING ENHANCED CONNECTIVITYAugust 29, 2017
NEW YORK – August 29, 2017 – TELEHOUSE, a KDDI Group company and the global leader for data centers, international internet exchanges and managed IT services, today announces the deployment of PacketFabric, the highly scalable network-as-a-service platform and a member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies, in two Telehouse data center facilities in New York.
The partnership allows both companies to extend their carrier and data center ecosystems. Telehouse customers in any of its U.S. data centers can now access the extensive network platform provided by PacketFabric, including Internet Exchange Point (IXP), Internet Service Provider (ISP) and Cloud Service Provider (CSP) services.
“Telehouse has been expanding our connectivity and cloud solutions both domestically and globally as we continuously seek to offer greater flexibility and choice to our data center customers,” comments Akio Sugeno, Vice President, Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development, Telehouse America. “We expect more deployments with the addition of new global locations coming on the PacketFabric network this year.”
Through the PacketFabric network, Telehouse will be able to greatly extend its internet exchange services, and its multi-cloud connectivity exchange, Telehouse Cloud Interconnect, thus enhancing its carrier-neutral data center services. By partnering with Telehouse, PacketFabric adds to its existing U.S. footprint and expands Over-the-Top (OTT) service offerings.
“We are very excited to increase the number of locations where Telehouse can offer services to their customers while allowing our customers to access Telehouse customers and services,” remarks William Charnock, CEO, PacketFabric. “This partnership is a natural fit, expanding the ecosystem for both companies across our carrier-grade SDN-based network.”
TELEHOUSE owns and operates 47 data centers worldwide. The company has two data centers in New York, including 85 Tenth Avenue in the Chelsea district of Manhattan and 7 Teleport Drive in Staten Island, New York, as well as one data center in California located in downtown Los Angeles at 626 Wilshire Blvd. The PacketFabric deployment will first be made available in Telehouse’s 7 Teleport Drive facility in Staten Island, as of August 1, 2017, with additional US locations following to follow by the end of the year.
